Best Dynasty Fantasy Football Landing Spots – WR (AFC)

Ideal World: The best landing spots for the 2024 WR class (AFC edition)

The 2024 WR class is projected to be one of the best we have had, talent is abundant. Our rookie drafts are going to be a celebration, that is how excited I am for this class. The purpose of this article is to try to pair WR needy teams in the AFC with a WR that could make an impact on your dynasty rosters. Let’s have some fun.


Malik Nabers (Los Angles Chargers)

This is a no brainer, please help Justin Herbert. After losing both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams during the free agent frenzy, the Chargers WR room is one of the worst in the league. In 2023, this passing game was lacking explosion, so why not go and draft one of the most explosive WRs in this draft? During his final year in college, Nabers had 19 deep catches (2nd) and 624 deep yards (4th), and is menace with the ball in his hands, if he ends up in LAC, I could see him leading all rookies in fantasy points for the 2024 season and possibly put himself into the top 12-15 dynasty WRs.


Brian Thomas Jr. (Miami Dolphins)

There is a crazy amount of weapons in Miami, but this could be the last year of Tyreek Hill and they may want to keep adding deep threats for Tua. Brian Thomas Jr. is one of the most physically gifted WRs in this class. Standing at 6’3’ and 209lbs, Thomas Jr. still ran a 4.33 (2nd fastest time of the WRs), so he would certainly be able to keep up with the track meet style offense in Miami. Thomas Jr. is not just speed, he has an impressive catch radius to win 50/50 balls something this Dolphins team could use.


Xavier Worthy (Kansas City Chiefs)

Yes I realize, KC just signed Hollywood Brown, but it is only a 1 year deal and Mahomes to Worthy needs to happen, fantasy needs it. The Chiefs have been looking for the next Tyreek Hill, those are lofty goals but enter in one of the best deep threats in this class. Worthy is not just 4.21 speed, he is a very good deep ball tracker, solid after the catch even with his small frame and a manipulative/twitchy route runner, go look up Worthy’s whip route vs. Iowa State, absolutely filthy.


Malachi Corley (Tennessee Titans)

One of my favorite players in this class and my current WR7. The YAC king leads the 2024 class in yards after catch (9.2), joins a revamped Titans offense and gives Will Levis a major safety blanket as he is one of the best short to intermediate threats in this class. Malachi Corley, who was voted as the best WR on the National team by the DBs at the Senior Bowl, showed his physicality with the ball in his hands and displayed he could be a decent deep ball tracker as well. Throw him in the slot with D-Hop and Ridley on the outside, this could be a really fun offense in 2024.


Javon Baker (Buffalo Bills)

A lot of mocks I am seeing have the Bills taking a 1st round WR, I have a feeling they wait and grab one later and address the defense with their 1st pick, so they go back to the UCF WR room in day 2. Josh Allen needs a “my ball” type of WR someone who he can trust to come down with those 50/50 deep balls. Enter one of my favorites of the class, Javon Baker. Baker is a fluid mover in his routes and has extremely impressive body control when attacking the ball in the air.  Baker had a contested catch percentage of 56.3% and an ADOT of 17.1, could fit right in as their WR2 for Allen.


Keon Coleman (Baltimore Ravens)

The Ravens have nailed it so far with Zay Flowers, so now they need to add to it. Enter in a big body/above the rim type WR in Keon Coleman. It was an up and down combine for Coleman, but he showed the things he is at very good on the athletic side, posting a 38in vertical and a 1007’’ broad jump. Coleman is a very polarizing player in this year’s draft due to how raw of a prospect he is but give him time and he could be a Michael Pittman type weapon that this Ravens offense is missing.


Ladd McConkey (Pittsburgh Steelers)

This one I could absolutely see happening. The Steelers are going to need to add another WR since Diontae Johnson is now a Carolina Panther, so why not add one of the best route runners in this class to take his spot? We would certainly see less drops out of Ladd. Does not matter if it was the Senior Bowl, Combine or his pro day, Ladd has consistently stood out and added himself into the late 1st, early 2nd round conversation. With the way the Steelers have a knack for developing WRs and the addition of Russell Wilson, it could be wheels up for Ladd and the offense in 2024.


Devontez Walker (Indianapolis Colts)

Just when I thought I was out, Walker pulled me back in after his combine showing. This could be a real fun potential landing spot. We may have only been able to see glimpses of what Anthony Richardson could be, but what we do know is that he has got a cannon for an arm, and what goes best with a cannon arm? Legit 4.3 speed and great ball tracking ability, enter in Tez Walker into that offense, who’s career average for a TD reception is 30.7, he is a true home run threat that this offense desperately needs to get to the next level.
